An Analysis of The Oxford Guide to Practical Lexicography (Atkins and Rundell 2008)

  • G-M de Schryver


Abstract: Since at least a decade ago, the lexicographic community at large has been demanding that a modern textbook be designed — one that would place corpora at the centre of the lexicographic enterprise. Written by two of the most respected practising lexicographers, this book has finally arrived, and delivers on very many levels. This review article presents a critical analysis of its features. Keywords: LEXICOGRAPHY, LEARNERS' DICTIONARY, MONOLINGUAL, BILINGUAL, CORPUS, FRAME SEMANTICS, ENGLISH, FRENCH, TEXTBOOK
